Portable Python

When I wandering around, through virtual world, looking for Python reference of matplotlib, don't know what link I'd click, suddenly I'm landing in Portable Python page. Barely interested, not because it's not interesting, but I've already have python on my Mac and this Portable Python came with .exe download, such a tedious job if I try to run it on my machine (clearly, it's Windows apps). However, it's really useful distribution of Python.

At download section, it's recommended to download via torrent network, another interesting idea. Here some excerpt from Portable Python website

Portable Python is a Python® programming language preconfigured to run directly from any USB storage device, enabling you to have, at any time, a portable programming environment. Just download it, extract to your portable storage device or hard drive and in 10 minutes you are ready to create your next Python® application.

One of the most powerful dynamic programming languages that is used in a wide variety of application domains and is used at many companies and institutions around the world ( YouTube, Google, NASA, Firaxis Games, etc.).
